Chef Peter Woolsey will be back in the Bistrot La Minette kitchen after a year of focusing on La Peg, on Thursday, November 19th to celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau Day 2015.
“It has been over a year since I opened La Peg. I find myself in a place where both restaurants are running well and now I want to do something I haven’t done for far too long, get back in Bistrot’s kitchen and cook again!”
